A lecturer at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Dr. Femi Omisore, was kidnapped by unidentified persons during this weekend. It was gathered that the lecturer was kidnapped at Ado-Ekiti, while on his way to Oye-Ekiti. The lecturer reportedly works at the Department of Environmental Design Management of the institution. According to a source, the kidnappers also killed Omisore’s driver and burnt his vehicle to ashes.
The source added: “A car was trailing him and his driver tried to escape but he was caught. The driver tried so much to avoid being overtaken by the unknown men, but it is painful that he did not succeed.
“They eventually killed him. The kidnappers came back to the area and shot at the petrol tank of the vehicle, resulting in an inferno that burnt the car.”
The Chairman, OAU Academic Staff Union of Universities, Dr. Caleb Aborisade, confirmed the incident.
